The Meridian competition is being held for the first time in the framework of the Army-2021 international army games. It is attended by military topographers from the Armed Forces of Russia, Belarus, China, Vietnam, Iran and Laos.

During this stage, the topogeodetic calculation in the shortest time needed to go through all the intermediate (control) points defined by the task. The length of the route was about 6 kilometers. The fixation of the passage of intermediate points is carried out using an electronic system or manually. It is necessary to mark the entire composition of the topogeodetic calculation, the interval between the mark of the first serviceman of the topogeodetic calculation and the last one should not exceed 180 seconds.

The order of the start and the routes of movement were determined during the drawing of lots. Russian topographers started with a team from China, a team from Vietnam with Iranian specialists, topographers from Belarus
with soldiers from Laos.

Contestants will have to go through two more stages of the competition in performing an exercise in tactical army shooting from a machine gun.
and the Topographic Quadlon, in which participants compete on specific topics in geodesy, cartography and geoinformatics.

On August 26, 2021, the participants of the competition will have to demonstrate their skills in performing special tasks in geodesy, topography and cartography.
